In 1978, atomic scientist Anatoli Petrovich Bugorski shoved his head into a particle accelerator to fix a malfunction. A photon beam that was shooting around in the accelerator hit his head at the speed close to the speed of light. The scientist claimed he did not feel pain, but saw a light that was “brighter than a thousand suns.”
Yehudit Shlosberg-Yogev’s first solo exhibition, titled “Brighter Than a Thousand Suns” (after the book of that title on the Manhattan Project) contains apocalyptic and poetic images that are fascinating and disturbing at the same time. Like Bugorski, for Shlosberg-Yogev, too—who created these works as part of her tenure as Artist in Residence at the Mamuta Art Center, the atomic bomb is the driving force.
